It's all about a fresh start for Olli Jokinen, even in a career that dates back to 1998 and has featured more pit stops than the Indy 500.

It's about getting energized again in a new locker-room where the 33-year-old Finn will hold the most seniority and serve as a voice of experience.

And so while the debate rages on about the merits and faults of the Winnipeg Jets' new addition -- some have praised the franchise for landing the top free-agent centre, others spit out Jokinen's name like they've just gulped sour milk -- the man himself is ecstatic he's found a place he believes is a perfect fit.
